People and businesses regularly use Gmail these days. This makes sense, as it is easy to use, free, and Google makes good products. If you are using Gmail, you are probably not using it to its full potential. Gmail has many tools that make it easy to keep your email tidy. We have outlined a few below and if you need instructions on how to implement these tools, follow the links.
Label your messages: Applying labels to your messages visually organizes your inbox so you know what emails you have to address first. For instance, if there are a few emails that you need to deal with before the others you can mark them with a red “Important” label. Or, if you are planning a vacation, you can apply a green “Vacation” label to any confirmation emails that come in.
Free up space with archiving: Do you like to have a clean inbox but have a ton of emails that you don’t wish to delete? By archiving messages in Gmail you can move them to an “All Mail” folder to get them out of the way. You can access them anytime this way but they won’t be cluttering your inbox.
Add a signature: Adding an email signature saves a tremendous amount of time because every time you send an email you do not need to retype your name and contact information. Gmail permits you to create a signature and automatically puts it into the bottom of every email you send.
Filter your incoming messages: Filtering is a very clever feature of Gmail. It will automatically label, file, delete, or archive emails. You can select the “Filter messages like this” option from Gmail’s “More” menu and specify what an email will include to have a certain action applied to it. For example, if you are looking to hire someone you may have any email that includes the words “resume” or “job” sent to a particular folder.
